Ada County to operate Detox Center for drunks & dopers?
Cost to taxpayers: $1.8 million per year
encourage irresponsible use of recreational drugs by building a Boise
Cocaine Hilton Hotel?
million per year for 12 drunk and doper beds and 8 mental health beds?
Compassionate my ass. If you're freaking drunk, pay a taxi, go home,
and sleep it off. If you're stoned off your butt, fall down in the
snow and freeze your butt off. But don't ask me to pay for you to toke
Mary Jane and snort crack every weekend.
Boise, ID –
Ya-yesss, girl friends, build a multi-million dollar Detox Center for drunks
and dopers in downtown Boise and guess what will happen? That's right.
Build a Detox Center and they will come.
By the thousands.
But why should Idaho taxpayers blow $2 million in operating costs per year
to encourage the irresponsible use of recreational drugs and alcohol by
building a Boise Cocaine Hilton Hotel? Oh, we're already doing it at
Franklin House? You just need $1 million more per year? Then
stop it. As in immediately, you dummies.
And guess who is offering
to manage this Drunk Tank fiasco and wants about $1 million more per year
from the state legislature? You guessed it: the Ada County
Commissioners. Right. The Ada County Commissioners.
The same Pirates of
the Caribbean -- different pirates this time around -- who mismanaged the
$100 million Ada County Courthouse Scam that led to the failed $136 million
University Place fiasco. And they want to manage the budget for a
Boise Hilton Detox Center? It's enough to drive you to drink.
These are the same
County Commissioner Bozos who are busy using fake Eminent Domain to take
back the property they already own, rental space in the Ada County
Courthouse, and overpaying market value to one of their sub-renters, Cryptic
Partners of California, for God only knows what reason. How does a
govt agency take back it's own property and pay a renter for the privilege?
Go figure. Only in Idaho. (By the way, for those of you keeping
score, Cryptic recently lost a similar Boise's Watergate case from Stockton
at the California Supreme Court.)
You remember Ada
County working with Cryptic Partners. This is the same development
company that is still embroiled in a $17 million lawsuit vs. the U of Idaho
Foundation (and, therefore, the U of Idaho) after having issued $28 million
in questionable invoices for Boise's bankrupt Watergate joke, University
Will we never
The source of the
recent monetary shortage problem is that President Georgie Porgie Bush
vetoed the federal appropriations bill that contained our U.S.
Congresscrooks' sneaky earmark to finance Boise's local Detox Hilton (as
well as Boise's 2009 Special Olympics Robbery). Hence, everybody and
their brother is running around like chickens with their heads cut off,
looking for a source of money to pour down the Detox Hilton Rat Hole.
cheerleaders at the left liberal Idaho Statesman, along with Boise
Democratic Rep. Margaret Henbest, a nurse practitioner and member of the
Idaho Legislature's mental health interim committee, are all crying in their
beers about lack of enough taxpayer booty for Boise's misunderstood,
impoverished, irresponsible drunks and nose candy addicts.
However, it is not
the function of a limited government -- which means you and me, the
taxpayers -- to pay for R & R & mental health care for local drunks and
druggies. We taxpayers are having a difficult enough time as It is
paying for our own health care much less paying for the crack heads down the
street. Our suggestion: if you can't do the time, don't snort
the line. If you can afford to toke it, you can pay for your own
Ooooh, I can hear
the left liberal welfare statists already, "You're not very compassionate,
Sometimes the most
compassionate thing you can do for your children and welfare state
politicians is to just say, "NO." It's called "tough love."
Whatever happened to individual responsibility for one's own actions?
Once again, this is
an individual rights issue. Voluntary donors can choose to donate and
build privately-financed institutions; welfare recipients have no rights to
tax others. Ada County Commissioners and their left liberal
cheerleaders down at the Idaho Statist newspaper, all I got to say to you
is, hey, don't Bogart that joint, my friends. -- FM Duck
